About Me

My photo
Phoenix, Arizona
Growing up my initials were OP, which was pretty cool in the 80's, right? Then I got married and my initials got updated to match our very texting obsessed era that we now live in (and shake our heads at)...OMG. For those who are texting illiterate, I'll spell it out..."Oh, My God!". I pity the girl whose initials are W.T.F. (I won't spell that one out. You can Google it or email me for an explaination on that one!)

I think being a nurse and being in school has really brought out certain coping skills? I really wish I was less of the above and more of the below
Phlegmatic Strength:3 Weakness:1 10%
Sanguine Strength:2 Weakness:1 8%
These are barely worth mentioning since it makes up so little part of my personality but I used to be way more Phlegmatic and Sanguine. I guess I've lost some of that nice, easygoing, low-key, balanced element.
But I guess I am what I am. I just REALLY need to work on being NICE. Great goal, huh?
"Let's try to be nice today, Olivia. Ok? Can you do that?"
My personality type tends to rub people the wrong way. I know it. I regret it and it hurts sometimes. But it seems my inner confidence and self-assurance keeps it from hurting too much for too long. And, apparently, I "thrive on opposition". Yikes. That can't be good.
Any Cholerics out there that can relate?
